Show & Tell: When I Was 17

Another Show & Tell link up with From Mrs to Mama:  WHEN I WAS 17

1. When you were 17, tell us what kind of car you drove, where you worked, and what you were usually up to on the weekends?
I drove a 1993 Chevy Corsica (yeah, pretty sure they don't make those anymore), worked at Maurice's at the Southern Hills Mall in Sioux City and on the weekends I drove "mains" with my friends and parked at the Mike's Foodtown parking lot with all the other high schoolers.

2. Show us a picture of you when you were 17 {roughly}.

Don't you just love senior pictures....and tight perms??

3. When you were 17, tell us what you wanted to be when you "grew up."
I wanted to be successful, rich, married, have children, be happy. I really didn't know what I wanted to do with my life at this took a couple years of college to figure that out.
4. When you were 17, tell us the kind of boys that you dated. Did you have a type? Do you have a relationship you remember well? Tell us about it.
Do we have two hours....girlfriend loved having a guy in her life and never went long without one. I liked athletic, good looking, funny guys. This doesn't mean I always had all three qualities at the same time! I dated another Nick who opened my eyes to Pearl Jam and thus love them to this day....that counts as a memory.
5. When you were 17, tell us where you pictured your life 10 years from then. Did it turn out the way you expected it to?
I would say my life turned out pretty much the way I envisioned, except at 27 I hadn't yet gotten married (though we were engaged & living with each other by this point) and, of course, hadn't had our baby yet. However, I had found a job I loved and didn't mind busting my butt to continue moving up the ladder.
Wow....this post really brought me back...and makes me happy to be at this point in my life!


  1. Love the perm!! :) Great senior picture!! I will admit.. I always wished I would have gotten a perm. :) Stopping by from the linkup! Great post!
